"Death Of A King"
Hip Hop


Deep inside your mind on a dark starless night

Possibly one of the most authentic hip hop tracks released this decade. Songs like this reassure old school hip hop fans that the genre is just going through a phase and before long will return to its very essence.

Soak your feet in this after a hard day's work.

Explicit.

"Cheater"
R&B


Rules are meant to be broken

A very lively and uplifting pop song that highlights a very serious issue that has been faced by couples for centuries. Sadly, this is song is so memorable, exciting, catchy and infectious that it will inevitably play in your head when you get away with something you shouldn't have done - like when you get the highest score in class and you cheated, or standing too close behind a really hot colleague in a packed elevator at work hoping they think it's just your cell phone that's sticking out, or taking money out of the collection box at church (and paying it back the next Sunday of course). It's got a really sweet and colourful instrumental that will make you appreciate ever second with your ears buried in it and lyrics that speak truths no cheater wants to hear. It'll make the perfect soundtrack for that show, "Cheaters" except it's so good it'll make a cheater want to cheat again.

Very light, easy on the ear feel. Just as pleasant to listen to when you are guilty as well as when you are not guilty.

So Beatlesque

Sweeter than nectar

Six organic, feel good tracks that'll give meaning to your music listening sessions once again breath new life into your music collections, set your heart on fire and then lasso the moon for you. Exquisitely written and performed from start to finish, this album will teach you everything you thought you knew about good music and then hit your newly found sweet spots repeatedly till you're screaming out your safe word you never knew you had frantically in ecstasy. It's lively and blissfully exciting with sweet riffs and soft, soothing bass lines, heartwarming vocal performances that'll get your heart racing, and lyrics you'd want nothing more than to sing along to. The album comes at a time when fans were starting to wonder what happened to the Milwaukee, US indie rock sensation, Ian And The Dream after peaking at an all time high and receiving widespread recognition beyond what any other independent Wisconsin band has ever achieved, and then suddenly vanishing. Well this is what happened, they morphed into something even more spectacular, The Last Bees and this, their self-titled debut album has got pop and rock music critics and fans raving like lunatics and has been spreading like wild fire across the US since its release on the 12th of April.

You'll hate how much you love it

Get your bubble gum and your pom-poms

No cheerleaders


Everyone loves a feisty girl, but nothing could possibly prepare you for this flamboyant extravaganza of defiance and youthful exuberance. Very vaguely reminiscent of that of M.I.A, famous for songs like "Bad Girls" and "Paper Planes" for no apparent reason, CC's voice will liberate you and make you feel like a rude teenage girl without a care in the world and all the boys waiting in line to get their hearts broken. To cut a long story short, this is bubble gum pop that will make you feel loved no matter how bad or good you think it is. It's nothing but bright, summery, colorful, really pink fun all the way through with themes ranging from parties and boys to love, heartbreak, friends and everything that's important to teens. If you are into pop artists like Nicki Minaj, Cardi B, Iggy Azalea and Bhad Bhabie (yes, pop) this album is most certainly not for you even though it may seem like it from the outside. This is very far from that new aggressive "no tampons here" style of music that is becoming too rampant for comfort on MTV - we want our girlie ladies back!

"Girls Scout" is as girly as an album could possibly ever get. If you are not sure what to expect, think of Gwen Stefani's song, "Hollaback Girl", now cover it in pink, sprinkle it with confetti and give it more attitude and sass than Miley Cyrus on her song, "23" with Mike Will Made This. Now do that 11 times, each time a little more than the last. What you get is a pop album that will knock your socks off really slowly, one song at a time.

Issa Party

One of those feel good records (à la Justin Timberlake, Bruno Mars) that is guaranteed to get everyone on the dance floor instantly. It's got that '90s pop meets disco meets R&B vibe complete with vocal harmonies that will sweep you off your feet, refresh you till you feel lighter and crispier than an autumn leaf and then gently cradle you all the way down to the ground while you snooze in the positive ambiance taking in all the good vibes and thinking about all the good times you've had. It's sexy and exciting but not overly sexually explicit or suggestive.

Good, clean and fun for all ages.

Even the City of Angels has its downsides

No, this isn't one of those songs you play when you've had too much fun and been up to no good so bad you know you couldn't have done it all of your own accord. It's not the song you play when you've had too much to drink and you're not sorry. Nor is it the song you play when you've been caught cheating again and you know you'll do it again because there are so many beautiful fish in the sea and the sun is always shinning just right. It's a sad song about moments when times are hard and everyone just seems to suck in so many ways - yes, it can happen in Los Angeles too.

"Just Growing Up"
Pop


A deeply moving pop song about growing up in the ghetto, touching on social issues and the day to day struggles of young children. The track is vaguely reminiscent of songs for social change that were very popular in the '90s and earlier eras of music, and it's very refreshing to hear that artists are still taking time out to address what's going on in the world. This is one of those records that will bring you back to centre and make you want to soften up your heart, let your guard down and love someone unconditionally - yes, it's hard sometimes these days, it's not just you. It features a very graceful chorus sung by kids that will melt your heart, get you all teary-eyed and make you want to get all "Angelina Jolie" or "Madonna".

"The Beauty Around Us"
Soundtrack


Make me feel good

New Jersey, US singer songwriter, Jim Gaven has brought us so many heartwarming records over the years. From songs about love and heartache to friendships, life and everything in-between. He's one of those artists that takes everyday subject matters and polishes them in writing till they shine bright like diamonds and seem much more special than one could have ever imagined. He is also known for his deeply touching guitar melodies and just over two months ago he released this sensational 6 track album. It's an album that you can throw on at any time to quickly set a mellow and peaceful or pensive mood. It's one of those albums that'll take you to the moon without trying too hard.

It has a mildly sedative effect that will make you feel so good and is so easy on the ears you'll get chills.
